I want to thank all who have checked in how the Kidney transplant has gone. Having had the transplant 1 month ago today I wanted to let you know how things have progressed. First off David who donated his glorious kidney has done great in his recovery and departed yesterday to head back to Colorado and be with his family. David is looking forward to again spending time with his family and getting his life back to normal. It has been great spending time with him and sharing this journey with him! The new kidney is working magnificently and acclimated to its new home. The recovery process continues with my many weekly visits to the Mayo for follow up blood work, adjusting of medications, and doctor meetings. The experience at the Mayo has been fantastic in all aspects and we are truly blessed to have such a great hospital near us. It is amazing that much of my blood work changed overnight after the kidney became acclimated and functioning. Now is the time for me to continue to rest and recover which I have a very difficult time doing. Thankfully my wife (caregiver in this process) and doctors have forced me to slow down and really recover. Things are going really well and I am thankful for all you who have reached out to both David and I throughout this process. It has been a true blessing and an uplifting experience having had all your prayers and various ways of support. THANK YOU!

First day of post-transplant followup in the books!! Scott had a successful visit at the Mayo yesterday and the kidney is very happy in its new home. We will be making trips to the Mayo 4-5 times a week for the next month to closely monitor the kidney’s function. Please keep us in your prayers for continued success.
